·1 min

European stocks are expected to open with mixed results after closing at a record high in the previous session. The Stoxx 600 index ended Thursday higher, surpassing its previous record close. Investors will be watching earnings reports from Allianz, BASF, and Standard Chartered. Additionally, Germany’s fourth-quarter GDP data is due. UK consumer confidence dipped in February due to higher inflation. US stock futures were unchanged after strong performances in the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite. In Asia-Pacific, markets were mixed as investors analyzed China’s property price data, with the CSI 300 index flat and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index declining.
